Why CNN’s Fat-Shaming Piece Regarding a Victim of the Oakland Fire is Tragically Noteworthy
Ezinne Ukoha

This is unspeakably horrific. Thank you for writing this piece. I recommend this piece, as well, to give greater context for the event and the community. A number of those who perished were transgender, and these kinds of spaces provided safety for them. Obviously, they weren’t physically safe. And not everyone was accepted, it appears, either. https://ww2.kqed.org/arts/2016/12/04/it-could-have-been-any-one-of-us/
